"It's Science Folks"

I have heard Ray talk about his commercial for many months now. I have called his show ,I think, two or three times.

Last time... we tangled. I told him that his strategy wasn't for everyone. Especially, when he is basically a "buy and hold" guy. Which he denied and within 10 minutes was preaching it. I also took issue with his saying that "buy and hold" was "science". I said, "Gravity is science, not "buy and hold". Thats when his wheels came off.

So he attacked me and went to commercial. I held on, and with time to think, came back after the break and said, "Boy, you guys certainly don't take any criticism do you? You are the ones that have the big voices and the kill button not me. I'm just trying to give an opinion."

Well, things changed in a heart beat. He started saying, "We are not bullies." Well maybe, but my father told me a long time ago, "The affirmation is in the denial."

He sure got friendly though, as he realized just how many listeners were hearing this. The next time I tuned in to the show he was still talking about my call. "That guy from California..." and his partner said, "Yeah, Ray don't call it science."

I do respect his opinion though and I told him so. I often listen to him now and he does have a strategy. I just think "buy and hold" is not science and it is going to hurt a lot of people.
